We are a race of workers.
Work requires brain, nerve, energy.
We glory in achievement.
To work and work with might and main, good
food is absolutely essential.
Although nearly every one eats soda crackers
sometime, yet there are a few people who do not con
sider their true value as an article of daily food. But
it is now a recognized and established fact that the soda
cracker contains the most tissue, fat and muscle forming
elements of any article of food made from flour.
Great as is the value of the common soda
cracker, yet it is small in comparison to Uneeda
Biscuit the most wonderful soda cracker ever
baked, and of which nearly 400,000,000 packages
have been sold.
Uneeda Biscuit, the food of power,
transmitting as they do the elements so vital to our
well-being, may in very truth be called " The Dynamo

Now that peace has been declared
between Japan and Russia the entire
wcriid will have something serious to
think about in regard to the strength
of the Japanese. In fact, a command
ing nation has sprung into being, with
which the powers must reckon in the
future. If you neglect the stomach and
bowels and allow the system to become
weas and rundown. Nature always re
quires a reckoning, and which in some
cases results in a long, serious sick

chances, and for Ihin reason we urge
you to commence taking Hosteller's
Stomach Bitters, at meal time and bed
time, and give it a fair chance to

been cured during the last SO years of
dyspepsia, heartburn, cos-

Credit is Better. New rating books
have been distributed to the members
of the Retail Merchants' association by
Secretary William Carstens. This is
sue is the second complete directory
of customers that has been compiled
by the local association, and it is full
of information of value to the mer
chants. The number of people rated
aggregates 11,000, and the total ratings
foot up 4(i,ooi, slightly iu excess of
the previous book issued. The most
interesting fact to the merchants is
that the general tone of the people's
credit has been very much improved as
a result of the rating book, which has
stimulated an honest desire among the
public to meet bills promptly. It is a
matter of considerable convenience to
customers to have their names in the
rating dook. ior it gives them some
identity and insures them credit even
if they are not known. The associa
